Complaints are heard now every day regarding the delay in the Canal Street Ferry. These delays are caused mostly by overloade'd wagons. Now, jus: who is to tiame in this instance is quite a debatable question. Whether or not the Ferry ('ompany shall provide a man to inspect each load before it goes on, or whether the merchants who load tiheir wagons are violating an ordinan'e that requlres only a certain number of pounds, or whether the' IInmane Socie.ty is n.ot paying strict atte' tion to the ext tlle burdens placed (on the beast.-, is l'e point at issue. There is on(e certain firm that loads acil one of its wagons to a apacilty that exceeds by at least 31) per cent the r-gula!ion load, and with the ri\er at almost iti low -st sta:ge. akes it almost Inpossiblb' for these poor animalst to haul the burd nsi that are Itla. ed uipon thlle. tesides this eiorltous .weight they are coelioelled to haul, they are belaten by negro drivers, who have nvt Ir had f"-lings for an animal. This, we le.lic\,', is at case for the 1' IIumane Society. A little Investigation and insp, tiol, at the ferry lanit:ngs 1 on either sid. of ;ic riv.r woulld, we b",lieve, relieve to a great et c. t ut lt t te nt i ,it ous lela,>s in the fti rri s reaching their laiilinigs. It is a conlolnltln tiingl nIow to see one' boat ,aitinlg to be uinloaded and the other terry waitinig inll thei riv'r to t;tke i;t' ;lace. W\e . ,il:.tilily are blele'vers in tlitlatle Soi ieiies and that thl.\ have doltne nl h good alnot bi' lquestioned, but ht're 'we Ietiid a society that w ill look at.:r the , o:llfort of thi ;I;assnlg* Is of the ferry as awll as the poor aillillits. For ttany yea's ih Canal Stre.t Ferry p.,opl, have violated their frail . hise by not )ldac:ng their approaches from the' l'vei' to tihe ferry ir'oditng to till' spe(' ihiatilins of their tIat llhise anti after thi t'con erted efforts of The HI['rald and the. itizens of our distri't. the Ferry Company was .ompellied to place in the waa.t applroach to Ill.' ferry all extra set of screws that made the grade' miuch less atil gave the i)oor allitals a lhant'ce at least to haul the heavy loads. The fratuchis'- of til' Soiuthertil Inlprovinl'lnt andi Ferry Com.pany states most it t.iti\l y that these' approat lie sha stal so erectted as to gi\e the easiest grade possible at lot watir. Now, we \\ant every oine of our readers, thli very next tiime thy c.ross the river, to stand at the head of the wagonl ap piroa Ih on the Algiers side and look at th.' angle of the two approaches for the ;Iasseng'rs. This gradel is all out of prolportionl to commlton sense, and w h\ our ciltizens will continue to tolerate such ait condition when it is a d:re t violation of the franchise'. is more than wte tan understatnd. Tihe lHerald has voiced its setnintents in the matter at least a hundred tinmes atni has g4lti;tt very little support in compelling the Ferry Company to live' up to tht-ir fraulchise' obligations. Hlave you ever noticed a poor old mlan or a poor old woan\iali r i to get frolt the ferry to the top of the ramp on the Algiers side, and ven i you. reader, who are perhaps young and vigorous. can't youl nothie the grat dif ference in going up the ramp at the present stage of the river? If the Ferry C(omlpany were living up to their franchise, or showe'd at disiposition to ac conmmodate its patrons, there would not be sucl, a vast difference in the grades of the two approaches. .otice this approach ltt hti t time you conicm from the ferry to the top of the ramp, andl compare it to what thie Ferry Company has done to relieve the poor horse. Now, we want to suggest to theil Ferry Company, since horse and mule have been relieved, why not retlie\e the Algiers people who are so justly entitled, by law, to the considthration the company have given to the mule. If we are wrong in our contentions, we are ready to "take water" pub licly; by this we mean, we will acknowledge that the Southern Improvement and Ferry Company art' living up to their franchise obligations. blut we do not fear for the least that any such evidence can be produced. It was only after several years that The herald and the Algiers Iim provement Association compelled the Ferry Company to sell wagon, school and package tickets on the Algiers side of the river anti also to cover the pontoons, according to their franchise. Very often complaints are made against corporations and with many readers there is a doubt whether or not the editor has not been too harsh in his criticism, but the violation in this case is so pronounced and the condition of these approaches so unreasonably steep, that we are perfectly satisfied in leaving the deciion of the reader with himself, after he has made an observa tion the next time he crosses over the river. We have been told on several occasions that the Southern Improvement and Ferry Company stands willing and ready to help build up our district and to do whatever they can for the Algiers public. We hope that the company officials will take a peep at the approaches on the Algiers side and tell us whether or not they aret doing what they can for poor humanity who pay a daily . tax to the Ferry Company for the privilege of living in the Fifth District. It has been suggested that the ferry house on the Canal Street side should I be moved back at least one hundred feet or more so that the Inclines on that ' side of the river could also be lengthened and give much needed relief. As a the levees are to be raised to the 23-foot level, It will necessarily require that t, the ferry house on the city side also be raised in accordance with the new r. grade; therefore, it will be absolutely necessary to carry the house back at te least one hundred feet or more, so that a four or five per cent grade could - be had. poration, but said board shall have no au thority to execute any mortgages upon the property of the company without the consent of a majority of the stockholders of said company, given at a meeting expressly called and held for that purpose. Each director shall have authority to appoint in writing a proxy to represent him at all meetings of the board. Article VI.-Whenever this corporation may be dissolved either by limitation or from any other cause, its affairs shall be liquidated by three commlssioners to be appointed from amongst the stockholders at a general meeting of stockholders convened for such purpose, of which meeting notice shall be given in the manner and time pro vided for stockholders' meetings by Article Seven of this charter: and a majority In amount of the capital stock of said company represented at such meeting shall be requii ire to elect.

Burgis, of the Grand Isle railroad, announces a new time schedule for the mixed train which leaves here in the morning at 9 o'clock. Heretofore, regular stops had been scheduled for this train and these regular stops were found to be a great inconvenience to the shippers in be Itween the stations along the road, and in response to the many requests of its patrons, Supt. Burgis has sent out a circular letter to all of the shippers of the lower coast notifying them that in the future freight trains or mixed trains, handling both local freight and passengers will stop anywhere along the line for the purpose of taking on and discharging freight. While this will necessitate a delay in the arrival of the train, the accommodation is what is being looked for by the ship rs and they, no doubt, will welcome the change back to the original sched ule. As far as the passenger trains are concerned, which leave here every eve ning at 4 o'clock and on Saturdays and Sundays at 5:30 p. m., there will be no change, the regular scheduled stops only will be made, thus assuring the same good time as has been made in the past. PRESENTED WITH A GAVEL. At the meeting of Orange Grove No. 9, Thursday, August 21st, under the head of good of the order, Sovereign Shade G. Smith advanced to the stump and in a few well chosen words pre sented, on behalf of Sovereign Louisa B. Cassanova, who was, previous to her leaving for Panama, the chaplain of the Grove, a beautiful gavel made of ignum vitae wood and adorned on each end with Panama coins. The guard Ian, Mrs. Amelia Smith, accepted the gavel on behalf of the Grove, stating that notwithstanding that Sov. Cassa nova is far away, her thoughts are of the Grove. A rising vote of thanks was extended to Sov. Cassanova and the clerk instructed to advise Sov. Cas sanova of the action and to express the hope that she would soon be with us again. i>imLCKT U0 AP WITH A lzaIS rorr. iv Troma ur-- An Escape By LUCY K. WYNKOOP Joe Green. a boy ten years oldl. lost his father. then his mother, and was th thrown out upon the world at an age ,, when he should have been subject to th the necessary training to direct him tn in an honorable career. th Joe was a bright boy and fitted for a better life than robbery and passing the principal part of his life in jail and the rest of it undergoing the risk of ice jail or something else. But the time fe had not come for him to show st strength of character enough to en- % able him to break away from the path a in which fate had placed him. 1When a. he was fifteen be and some other youngsters attempted to rob a man Al who defended himself till a policeman cl arrived. and the boys were all caught mt in the act. be Joe, who was the youngest of the lot. fr was sent to a reformatory. It was one of those prisons where boys are taught to some trade by which to earn an hon w orable living There was a power ol house, with an engine to drive the ma- to chinery in the other buildings. Joe w was interested in this engine as soon f': as he saw It and succeeded in getting himself as.igned as a helper to the en- y gineer. lie began by shoveling coal hi into the furnace, but showed such ap- 94 titude for mechanics that he was ad- go vanced to the post of assistant engi- l: neer. To be more explicit about Joe's apti- It tude. he was full of resource. 1Where another person would take an ordinary k way to :acct'niplish a mechanical re suit he wou!d take a short way. The n first notice that was taken of this fac- h ulty was one day when a machine II broke. A I'icce of work that was due I to be tlnished at a certain time was dependent upon it. It would require c some time to procure the broken part. i and it seemel that the work it was doing must stop. Joe suggested a way v by which it might Ie temporarily re paired and the work go on. His sug gestion was acted upon and the work finished in time. r Joe became so infatuated with ma chinery that he was anxious to get out into the world and become a ma chinist. lie was not a patient boy few persons whose abilities are of the kind called genius are-so his inventive brain turned toward a method of es cape from the reformatory that he might go to some place where his past would not he known and enter upon a career connected with machinery. He thought over a number of plans by which he might get out of the prison. but none of them were practicable. But at last .le hit upon an original conception, one that was allied to the science of mechanics. Some mathe matical knowledge was required to put it Into practice, but there was a school in the reformatory which the boys were required to attend. and Joe showed a considerable aptitude in a mathematical way. The suggestion came In this way: The power house was built against the prison wall. Besides the engine. It contained a broad leather belt turned by the shaft. the upper end running over gearing attached to the ceiling. Beside this gearing was a window. which was usually kept open in order to let out the heated air of the engine and furnace room. One morning it occurred to Joe that the belt might possibly be used as a conveyance to carry one to the win dow. whence he might lower himself to the ground outside the prison wall. SBut no one could Jump from the belt Sto the window without running the risk of being dashed against it or fall SIng to a brick yard pavement below it. or both. There was but one time when such a ride could be taken. e That was when the steam had been t shut off and the belt was slowing up previous to stopping its revolution. SThis was attended to by the engineer Shimself at 6 o'clock every workday Sevening, and there were usually other persons, prisoners or officials, about during the closing hour: therefore the feat must be performed if presence of Sothers. SJoe found time when he was sup g posed to be studying to calculate a Spoint where he could jump on to the Sbelt, be carried to the window and stop there, though the basis of these calculations was obtained by watch Sing the belt revolve previous to stop Sping. noting especially the position of ethe lacing with reference to the point I at which the belt must be boarded. He was months making these nota tions and calculations and at last was e enabled to fix a point which many no 'tations at the closing hour showed al d ways stopped at the window. o One evening when there was no one Sbut the engineer and Joe in the engine room the former saw the boy seize a coiled rope that he had kept ready for his purpose. Jump on the belt, bold on to each edge. ride to the window and disappear The engineer was too astonished to give an alarm, and whether he gave one at all was not settled at the investigation that fol. lowed the daring feat. It was midwinter when Joe Green made his experiment, and it was not 0only dark without. but a snowstorm Swas raging.
